Race something pretty new...... then you should be able to get away with a tiny portable air compressor and a tire pressure gauge.

That is my goal but with my old small block junk. I'm mostly there, I haven't needed to work on it at the track in a long time, i just have to let go of the safety net of the tool box. I feel it is pretty reliable for having 600ish HP.

Usually a tire pressure gauge, a jack, an impact, a couple of screwdrivers, a wrench for the bottle nut and a multi-tool that I keep in the console of the truck.

Everything is ready to rock when I get to the track and I avoid working on it there as much as possible! (I hate distractions and work alone 99% of the time.)

Of course, It's a slow street car so it requires nothing between rounds.

At this point, I'm usually one and done on test and tune nights. I know what change I've made and what to expect. My Virtual Dyno predicted 10.40 the other night and it ran 10.40. Time to go home.

It sounds like you need to work on your car some more so you can beat the normal Virtual dyno predictions, be the leader, not part of the pack devil grin work wrench up

Pretty much what everyone else brings. But I also take a lot of spares, gaskets, starter motors ignition stuff carb stuff etc. A lot of the guys call round for spares and i will let them have whatever they need, just ask them to replace. But for this next season I'm thinking of bringing a spare sump pan. shocked
